Central region events and training session in 2020

We’ve been busy organising network events and training sessions for Woodland Trust volunteers. This is based on feedback that you’ve given us at previous events and we’d welcome suggestions for future training sessions and events so please get in touch at any time! Keep an eye on Whittle for further updates.


Our volunteer network events are a way for us to say a massive thank you for all that you do for us as volunteers. It’s wonderful to be able to get everyone together to share their experiences of volunteering, discover what activities you’ve been involved in and tell you all about various Woodland Trust projects, developments and latest updates.
